This is my first post and apologies if it seems a bit critical.
The Sunday Times today (News, page 7) has an article by a Jonathan Leake, their Science Editor. Briefly, it says that “the 5:2 diet lacks any evidence that it can help with long term weight loss, researchers have found.”…………………..”Mosley agreed there was no evidence of long-term weight loss among people following the Fast Diet plan”…………………..”Mosley agreed that no studies had been published confirming that intermittent dieting led to long-term weight loss.”
There is much more in this vein.
As someone who has recently purchased two of Dr Mosley’s books and am considering going on the 5:2 diet *, I would welcome comments from people who are more knowledgeable on the subject than I am.
I would point out that I am not assuming the Sunday Times article is correct – but perhaps it is worth considering?
